National Strategic Plan for Reproductive Health Commodity Security

Publication date: 2003

[image: image1.emf] Foreword Reproductive Health Commodity Security (RHCS) was recognized as an issue when leaders in reproductive health realized that the demand for RH commodities was increasing around the world as resources available for providing them (RH commodities) declined. In the case of contraceptives, the worldwide gap between needed supplies and the funds available for procuring supplies is projected to reach $4.21 billion by 2015. In 2001 an international conference titled, ‘Meeting the Reproductive Health Challenge: Securing Contraceptives and Condoms for HIV/AIDS Prevention,” was held in Istanbul, Turkey. At this conference, the need to develop a secure supply of RH commodities was first recognized. In response, participants called for the development of a common approach to RHCS. An international workshop was held in 2001 in Washington DC to discuss the concept of a Common Assessment Framework (CAF), after which a committee was formed to develop the CAF. The Committee eventually decided to broaden the scope to include all RH commodities and the CAF became the Strategic Pathway to Reproductive Health Commodity Security (SPARHCS - pronounced “sparks”). SPARHCS is a comprehensive, long-term, holistic approach, which seeks to help countries develop a strategy to ensure that sufficient RH commodities and supplies will be available in the future. The SPARHCS framework is designed to be adapted to the needs and conditions of individual countries. This initiative was supported by more than 40 international organizations including USAID, UNFPA, WHO, World Bank, DFID, Packard Foundation, multiple implementing agencies and international stakeholders. The development of this RHCS Strategic Plan coincided with several important reforms initiated by the Federal Government of Nigeria. These included revitalization of the National Contraceptives Logistics Management System, approval and launch of the National Reproductive Health Policy, the National Reproductive Health Strategic Framework and Plan: 2002-2006, and the ongoing review of the National Population Policy. The RHCS Strategic Plan is designed to operationalize the FP, HIV/AIDS and STI components of the above documents. To define the family planning situation and condom requirements for prevention of STI/HIV/AIDS in Nigeria, the SPARHCS Framework was used to conduct a basic diagnosis of the existing CLMS and related systems. The outcome of this diagnosis formed the basis of the RHCS Strategic Plan. It is my belief that implementation of this multi-partner strategy will assist Nigeria to progress toward the time when commodities and supplies are readily available at all levels so that men, women and youth can choose, obtain and use quality contraceptives and condoms for HIV/AIDS whenever they need them.

The goal of Reproductive Health Commodity Security is to improve the quality of life of Nigerians by ensuring that all men, women and youth can choose, obtain and use contraceptives, including condoms for the prevention of STIs and HIV/AIDS. The National Strategic Plan for Reproductive Health Commodity Security was developed using the SPARHCS process as described in the Foreword of this document. During the development of the Strategic Plan, a basic diagnosis of problems impacting on RHCS was conducted, which identified the following issues: Inadequately functioning logistics system, with deficiencies in availability of RH services and commodities; Inadequate political commitment and financial support for RHCS at the Federal, State and Local Government levels; Lack of management coordination among stakeholders working in the field of RHCS; Inadequate standards of practice for RHCS; and Low level of male involvement in RHCS. Short- and long-term tasks were developed to address the above issues, and were subsequently transformed into this RHCS Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan covers RHCS for contraceptives and condoms for STI and HIV/AIDS prevention, collectively referred to as “RH Commodities.” The package of RH commodities in this Plan includes supplies for all modern methods of contraception, including condoms which are used in the prevention of HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs). The “dual role” of condoms in the provision of contraception is also recognized. The development of this comprehensive Strategic Plan required the participation a number of stakeholders. These stakeholders, plus others yet to become involved, will also partake in the funding and implementation of the plan. Stakeholders are drawn from a number of different concerned groups and organizations: Government; Donors and Partners; NGOs/Civil Society; Private Sector Organisations; Individuals. The Strategic Plan contains six Components, each of which addresses a specific Strategic Objective: Component Strategic Objective Finance To promote the provision of secure and permanent financial support for contraceptives among governmental, non-governmental and private organizations and individuals. Policy To reduce legal, human resource, financial, cultural, informational and operational barriers in order to mitigate their impact on the provision and use of quality contraceptives and related services. Logistics To ensure that contraceptives and condoms are supplied in the right quantities in a timely and efficient manner at all levels. Service Delivery To increase and secure permanent access to and use of safe, comprehensive, reliable and high quality contraceptives and related services. Demand To create processes and mechanisms that promote a balance between the demand for and the supply of quality contraceptives and to promote demand in order to increase low-levels of contraceptive prevalence. Coordination To develop and promote political, governmental, organizational, public/private and socio-cultural coordination focused on ensuring continued planning, management and provision of contraceptives and related services. Estimated Budget: The amounts listed below are the totals taken from the estimated costs of implementing the activities and sub-activities proposed in the RHCS Strategic Plan. At the time of the drafting of the Plan, only partial commitments of these funds had been secured. A determined effort will be undertaken on the part of the FMOH and its partners to secure from stakeholders the remaining financial and other commitments required to fully support the Plan. Estimated Budget Component (millions of Naira) (millions of US dollars) Finance 257.3 1.979 Policy 175.0 1.346 Logistics 2,941.5 22.627 Service Delivery 1,063.4 8.180 Demand 300.5 2.312 Coordination 156.7 1.205 Total 4894.4 37.649 (Conversion rate at N130.00 = US $1) The FMOH, as the coordination agency responsible for the implementation of the Strategic Plan, expects that all commitments secured from all stakeholders in the process of endorsing and adopting the RHCS Plan for 2003-2007 will be sustained throughout the time of reference. The continued commitment to partnership and funding of this Plan in totality will ensure RHCS in Nigeria. Guide to Terminology Used in the Strategic Plan Each of the six Components of the Strategic Plan is described in detail in this document. Every Component contains an overall Strategic Objective that describes the broad level of accomplishment expected within the component. Strategic Objectives are further broken down into a number of Objectives that give details of the expected accomplishments for each component. Objectives are in turn described in terms of the following: Issues Addressed: The specific problems or opportunities on which the objective focuses. Activities and Subactivities: A listing of the actions necessary to achieve the objectives. Coordinating Agency: For each component, the Federal Ministry of Health is the agency which coordinates the activities and sub-activities which will be undertaken. Coordination implies the harmonization, management, synchronization and direction of the activities undertaken by implementing agencies. The FMOH assumes overall responsibility for ensuring the accomplishment of all activities in the Strategic Plan. The specific office in the FMOH to assume this role is the Department of Community Development and Population Activities. Implementing Agencies: Each activity and sub-activity requires at least one organization to take responsibility for the accomplishment of the required actions. These implementing agencies will work under the coordination and direction of the FMOH/DCDPA. Estimated Budget (Naira): The estimated cost of implementing every activity and sub-activity. These figures should be considered as broad approximations until more detailed budgets are developed. Timing: The approximate time during which the activities and sub-activities are planned to be accomplished. Activities are marked as “done” where they have already been accomplished. Some activities are listed as “ongoing” which indicates that implementation has begun, but is not yet complete. Output Indicators: Statements which describe the quantifiable products of the activities once implementation is complete. Outcome Indicators: A description of the measurable results which will be obtained once the outputs of the activities have been realized. Assumptions: A listing of the preconditions, requirements and circumstances that must exist before and during the successful implementation of activities in the plan.
